Community Tourism Action Plan (CTAP) Program
2017 Application for Community Partnership Tourism Funding
What is this program?
The Community Tourism Action Plan (CTAP) program is a yearly, on-going community-oriented tourism marketing and development investment program. Up to a $10,000 funding level may be allocated to each Washtenaw County community to support new and/or enhanced visitor-based programming focused on either or both community promotion and product development activities.
Who is eligible?
Proponent applications can be local community governments or respective government-approved local community businesses or other associations. Funding is provided through the attached CTAP application which is to be approved by the Washtenaw County CVB CTAP Committee. The application can be downloaded here.
Monies applied for are to be given on a 20% matching basis. Higher consideration will be given to projects that include more than one vested stakeholder resulting in the leveraging of the grant dollars. Grant denials are at the discretion of the Grant Committee: Ex: Farmers Markets, Contractors for development of site plans, events for strictly local audience.
